Vivien : A Love Affair in Camera

This advert is located in and around Harrogate, London

Advert Description

Oxfam Bookshop Harrogate The stunning photographic record of a loving friendship, from 1936 when McBean spotted Vivien Leigh as a newcomer to the London stage until her untimely death in 1967. White cloth, black titles to spine; lower edges bumped and slightly marked. Unclipped dustwrapper has slight shelfwear, small nick upper back, inner surface lightly foxed. Lower fore-corners faintly damp marked. Otherwise internally unmarked. 112pp; over 70 b&w plates. A unique photographic record of Vivien Leigh's life taken by the photographer who noticed her on her first stage appearance in 1936 and asked her to model for him. This meeting led to a series of photographs produced at regular intervals throughout the rest of her life and a friendship which lasted beyond her death. The photographs which were taken for the casting of the role of Scarlet O'Hara were so successful that certain camera angles and the special "Vivien Leigh look" the photographer created were incorporated into key scenes in "Gone with the Wind".;Personal memoirs which accompany the photographs contain many unknown details about her life and have ensured that her legend, like that of Marilyn Monroe, has lived after her death.
